The Bannatyne Group is investing a further £1.2m in its Bury St Edmunds Spa, creating around 20 new jobs.

The site, formerly Clarice House, was acquired by the group in 2015. It has already spent £750,000 refurbishing the gym and an initial £375,000 on the spa to create state-of-the-art treatment and relaxation rooms and meet its corporate standard.

The success of the new facilities has enabled further work to upgrade the pool and wet facilities, and convert the 13 bedrooms into additional treatment rooms and relaxation spaces, it said.

Chief executive Justin Musgrove said: “Members and guests have been blown away by the spa, so we have taken the decision to extend it to enable even more people to enjoy the amazing facilities. It is also a demonstration of our confidence in Bury St Edmunds and our determination to play a significant role in supporting the local economy, through serious investment and job creation.”
